Stayed 3 nights in October 2014

The reviews were right. We loved it at Veligandu.”

Secluded feeling, staff performance, location, and very few kids! (ok, 4 best things)

Once we landed at the resort, we were greeted the moment we got off the plane, escorted to reception, and given a welcome drink while we were oriented to the island. Aseel, our representative, was excellent. He walked us to our water villa, and after a snag with the door key, we were in our over water villa. This is the ONLY way to go at Veligandu. The beach villas are nice and have direct access to the water, but the over water villas are really special, with a staircase directly down to the water, so you can start snorkeling right away. We booked a regular water villa, and wanted to upgrade to a jacuzzi water villa. The front desk asked if we wanted to stay one night at the nearby Kuramathi Resort, and then return to a jacuzzi water villa at Veligandu, for no extra charge. We gladly agreed, and it was worth it. The house reef at Kuramathi was amazing. we swam with sharks, rays, and every kind of fish. Veligandu has a half-day trip to Kuramathi, and I would recommend going there for the reef snorkeling. The food at Veligandu was very good. There were a lot of curries and local dishes, but enough international cuisine to keep everyone happy. There is no doubt that you should do the All Inclusive Plus plan. Otherwise, it is going to cost you as much or more. Best is to book it the all inclusive, then you don't have to worry about it. There were enough food options at the meals, and there was also a 24-hour "afternoon tea" that you can get at the Thundi Bar, which was passable. The dive centre was amazing. We went for an hour on a private boat going reef snorkeling with Sea Doo motorized snorkel assistance devices. We were taken out to the middle of the water and given these motorized devices, and it allowed us to get all the way around that reef in no time. It was truly amazing. For a truly memorable Maldives experience, Veligandu is the place. There are very few kids, and you feel at times like the island is your own. We will definitely go back to Veligandu.

SUPERB!”

It was our first visit to Maldives,my husband and I agreed Veligandu island resort was well chosen! We spent a week there.Though the island is small but well kept, well maintained and very clean, so clean that guests were walking around barefooted! Most important is there hardly any mosquitoes! I would know as I attract mosquitoes as bee to honey! Even at full occupancy, we didn't feel overcrowded at all. Only at dinner time we realized there were many guests! We booked jacuzzi water villa which is highly recommended, the room is spacious and so is the deck, we saw sharks , sting rays and lots of colorful fish just in front of our deck and every night we had a family of baby sharks swimming below our deck, my husband and I enjoyed ourselves tremendously feeding them every night. We could go snorkeling during the day straight from our deck too. Highly recommended the'All Inclusive Package' if you like your booze! As nothing is cheap on the island. The all inclusive package includes 3meals daily, all beverages alcoholic and non alcoholic, drinks in mini bar as well which would be replenished each day. Not everything in the mini is in the all inclusive, read carefully. The snacks NOT included. Good to bring your own. The weather wasn't so much on our side, it was rainy season, but it was much cheaper compared to dry season. We took our chance, we had 2 days of heavy rain, the rest of the days it was passing showers. Still it wasn't spoiled for us at all, it was still warm enough that I got a lovely tan and my husband sun burnt..... We indeed had our first taste of the Maldivian hospitality we heard so much about! Staff were courteous, friendly, helpful and sincere.They made us so welcomed! However we did encounter a rude staff at the reception, when all other staff were great, 1 with bad attitude was immediately felt. We haven't let this person spoiled our holiday or our impression of Veligandu though. We definitely would go back again one day!

Not easy to choose a resort when it is the first time to Maldives. All resorts are looking similar, all located in splendid atoll... we selected Veligandu mostly based on the comments on internet and we did the right choice! All the excellent reviews are justified. The resort is located on a beautiful island, not too big and not too small. Villas ( we had a Jacuzzi Water Villa) and all the premises are perfect. And on the top of it, all staffs and management are very professional and friendly and will make your stay excellent and comfortable. Food, Breakfast, lunch and dinner, you will get whatever you feel to eat, and well prepared. We stayed 5 nights, with all inclusive package, which includes 2 day trips and we couldn't see the time during these few days, and our only regret is to had to leave and couldn't stay longer. But we are planning to come back to Maldives later this year and we will definitely stay in Veligandu resort again.

Idyllic paradise”

My husband and I chose Veligandu due to its high ratings. We also found the rates more affordable than comparable resorts. The all-inclusive option was a perk as we worried about the prohibitively expensive costs of food in the islands. We spent a total of five nights in Veligandu (3 nights water jacuzzi and 2 in beach villa.) The water villa is more exotic as the wooden floors and structure make it more airy and tropical feeling. The beach villa is made of cement and feels like a regular old house but the outdoor bathroom is nice. I would recommend staying at the eastern part as the water is more tranquil. There is also less noise from boat and plane traffic. I highly recommend the snorkeling excursions. They take you to areas with giant reefs. We swam with sharks, turtles, eagle rays, Nemos and saw a moray eel. Snorkeling is also great in the eastern beach off Veligandu. As for gear, the prices for a mask and snorkel at the boutique in the island is reasonable and comparable to what we paid at a dive shop in Singapore. It is 10 USD a day for rentals. No complaints about the food. There is always a wide array of selection of appetizers, mains and desserts. There is always a pasta bar and fresh fish grill for dinner. Do choose the all inclusive package as it gives you unlimited drinks including alcohol for your entire visit. Because the island is small, there is less than a 100 rooms so the island never felt crowded even when they were at full capacity. Finally, the staff is the best! They are always attentive and pleasant conversationalists. I learned from talking to them of their great labor conditions and policies. As a labor scholar, it made me happy to hear this and made me glad I picked this resort. I totally recommend a visit to Veligandu. I myself will likely return.

A marvelous honeymoon in a perfect world”

Just everything — the place, the staff, the beach, the ocean, villas, the food, guests

it was an absolutely amazing vacation and honeymoon. just everything about this 9-day stay at veligandu was perfect. and that's not about honeymoon euphoria — the island and the hotel are both impressive in fact: 1) veligandu means "white sand" and the island is fantastic not just on a postcard but in the real life (which is not always the same). it's shore is a beatuiful beach from all sides where you can swim with a great comfort. the island is in the lagoon with crystal clear waters and is very calm on tides and currents. we've visited other maldivian islands and that's not a rule. 2) most of the rooms are water villas and we think that's the only way you should have a holiday on maldives. because you have your own private part of the ocean accessible through the ladder on a terrace. and your own 24/7 aquarium with a lot of local fish species (including baby black tip reef sharks — but they do not attack people and go away as you approach). and the best part is that you are safe from insects who don't reach water villas. although veligandu is sprayed with anti-mosquito gas everyday so we didn't see any. the rooms itself are very clean and comfortable with a great terrace to have a rest during the daytime or meet sunrise. 3) service quality is outstanding. hotel staff is very kind, friendly, clever and professional. they try to remember your habits and then foresee what you want. 4) the food is amazing. every lunch and dinner you have a new set of first-class world cuisine that is so delicious that it's hard to stop. and the chef goes out at the dinner to talk with hotel guests and you can get something special if you can tell an interesting story. 5) the hotel has a lot of excursions and sport activities that you can have. they even set their clocks to different time to get you out of the real world! and that's great — you're in a paradise with no shoes, no news, no money needed (use all inclusive plus package), no time and a beautiful nature.

Paradise on earth”

the friendly and helpful staff, the sun,sea and rich marine life, the food

Words cannot be used to described what I had experienced and seen in the last 3 days with Velingandu Island Resort & Spa. Met a lot of friends among the staff and the fellow travellers. It is not overcrowded and plenty of space of each traveller to marvel at the beauty of the nature this island has to offer. There are plenty of activities provided for swimmers and non swimmers. Excursions are aplenty. We stayed in the water villa and was upgraded to a room with jacuzzi. The view from the water villa was brilliant. With easy access to the water, we saw plenty of marine life even without entering the water. We took the all inclusive package which was totally worth it. The food was never boring during our 3 days there. My compliments to the chef and his team who kept the food interesting. Also enjoyed the Thundi Bar which was open 24 hours. The team who runs this resort is really wonderful and made us felt totally at home. It was the first time I left an island with tears in my eyes, wishing to stay on. Thank you Veligandu Island Resort Team for the hospitality and we will definitely be back!Till next time

Relaxed holiday in a Maldivian paradise”

Superb stuff performance, stunning nature&wildlife, relaxed lifestyle

The island is very small, only around 90 villas most of which are over-water. Beach villas are lost in the lush gardens, so it looks very green. If you're looking for some privacy, this is the place. "No news, no shoes", you feel totally relaxed - we haven't put our slippers on a single time! Rooms are well-equipped with all you might need with some slight signs of wear (but we did see some renovation works). Still everything works well, big TV helps during bad weather. Room is cleaned twice a day. Dining is ok. Could be better in terms of variety for main course, but you get plenty of fruits and desserts all day long (ice-cream twice a day), so I'd give it solid 4 out of 5 for its price. Water sports are quite limited, but there's a pretty good house reef where you can spend hours snorkeling. This is the first place we've seen so many moray eels, dog face puffer fish and octopus. Enjoyed snorkeling every day! Stuff deserves all the good words, both for friendlyness and attentiveness. Hands down, Veligandu team was the best stuff we ever met at Maldives yet! Including our room-boy Moosa, who did an amazing job every day keeping our Villa fresh and cleaned. Thank you for making our holiday so special! All in all, this is our first island in Maldives we're actually planning to return soon. Room tips. For the low season, west side is more windy and shaky at night, but you get some fresh breeze cool for afternoon sunbathing. East side is calmer and totally quiet, with almost no breeze so gets too hot by noon and you might feel some unpleasant smells because its windless and still water. High season is vice versa, I suppose. Lagoon is better on the west side, you get lots of clear waters with rare corals and the best access to the reef. We stayed in JWV #165 which was perfect for both swimming and snorkeling, as most of 155-174 villas should be. But the reef is deeper on the east side (edge of atoll) where bigger sharks and other rare species are.

Beautiful resort with friendly staffs.”

The white sand long beach is the most strong point of this resort.

it is the 3rd time for us to visit maldives, but i can say that veligandu island resort & spa is definitely the best resort in my maldives life. we chose full board, not all inclusive, but it was enough for us. the buffet menu includes much variety of food and the meals tastes very good all the time. we stayed 5 nights, but there was not served same soup during our stay. we didn't expect about house reef before arrival, but actually it is good for seeing the many kinds of fishes, stingrays, sharks and manta ! we are lucky to have opportunity see manta floating near the jetty. sunset dolphin cruse and snorkeling boat cruse is highly recommended. we could see the dolphins swimming along our boat.

Maldives holiday”

Had a fabulous holiday in Veligandu. First visit to Maldives. Was a little nervous given the quarantine restrictions but all went smoothly till we landed in veligandu. Be sure to check up on covid requirements in Maldives before you go. Veligandu had organised for us to be picked up at the arrival area and the person made sure we boarded the sea plane... The resort itself was fabulous, staff made us feel very welcome and the food was great... In particular, would like to thank Rifau (who was our personal island host and who handled all our requirements including organising a birthday celebration), Hussein, Manju at the bar and pretty much all the staff...loved the pool and my stay. and we were upgraded to a water villa which was also lovely. a very minor suggestion is that the complimentary photo we took by your inhouse photographer was great and they should allow guests to sign up for a smaller package than your bronze one...

Paradise on Earth!”

We visited Maldives for our honeymoon, and after reading many reviews on multiple sites, we decided to spend our time at Veligandu Resort. The resort is located approximately 20 minutes away from the airport by seaplane. Seaplane stopped flying before sunset and hence if you are flying in late, you may need to find a stay in a hotel near the airport. Veligandu contacted us directly few hours after I made the booking via Agoda. The arrangement was smooth and directions are easy to follow. All the staff at the resort are really very friendly. They are constantly smiling and asking how's our day whenever we walked past them - from the receptionists to the waiters and even gardeners! They can also speak in many languages and so you do not have to fear any language barrier. Our room was the Water Villa with Jacuzzi facing sunset. Water Villa is highly recommended. They are cleaned twice a day and maintained regularly. The view of Indian Ocean was so pacifying, and there are many marine life around the villa. During our stay, we spotted sharks, stingray, crabs and many other beautiful fishes around us. we snorkelled daily by just stepping out of the deck. For the Jacuzzi, it may be skipped unless you like to sit in a heated pool facing the wall or ocean (without much privacy). We stayed with a Full Board package, with 3 meals provided daily, excluding drinks because both my wife and I do not take alcohol. Despite our friends sharing how bad the food was at other resorts, the food at Veligandu is delicious! The menu refreshed daily so you will never be bored with the food. There is an egg station in the morning, grilled fishes and 2 other live stations that change the menu daily during lunch and dinner. Since our package excludes drinks, we find ourselves only having to buy drinks during lunch and dinner because water and juices are provided for breakfast. Prices of drinks can be a little steep so I would recommend if you are a heavy drinker, go for All Inclu

Very friendly staff, good clean and well kept resort, exquisitely private location

Veligandu Island Resort is located at the exquisite North Ari atoll. This small island feels private with low density of guest. The villas are in well maintained condition and clean. In fact the whole Veligandu island is clean and well kept. Food selection during the daily buffet styled meals are of high quality with good selections. Drinks are adequate. Water sports and diving activities are available and interesting underwater spots surround the island. Definitely well worth the stay!!

Food/beverage, housekeeping, beauty of the place

I can't rave enough about the Island and am definitely going back if I visit Maldives again. Was there for 5D4N, on an all-inclusive package. Service was impeccable: - resort staff replied to my email queries prior to visit very promptly - we were given a personal walk-through of the resort, where to find good/drinks, how to sign up for activities etc once we arrived - one day before checkout, we were given a letter explaining exactly what we had to do when, and assured that our return flight plans would be reported to us the night before check-out - the staff at the restaurants were super courteous and attentive, and genuinely friendly to guests. Housekeeping was also superb: - staff cleaned the room twice a day and replaced everything that was used promptly - the place was just super clean and beautiful Activities: - really enjoyed the sunset cruise. We spotted dolphins! - visit to Rasdhoo, inhabited island, was culturally interesting for us as we didn't get to see the 'real' Maldives otherwise. However, we felt the stop at the island could have been shorter as there wasn't much to do and the island was small and easily covered within an hour. - windsurfing coach was really patient and guided us very professionally Food: - again, 5 stars! Amazingly, I don't think I saw a single entree repeated despite eating all 3 meals at the resort for 5 days - quality of the food was excellent, as was the spread. I wished there could have been some authentic Maldivian dishes other than the international fare though - alcohol options at the bar were excellent. I had The pleasure of savouring many cocktails throughout my trip scenes -Maldives is so beautiful there isn't much to say other than I was awed by the place. We were excited to wake up every single morning to snorkel amongst the house reef to spot different variety of marine life

Extraordinary”

From the moment we set our feet to island everything and everyone was super friendly, kind and warm. Staff was always smiling and greeting us whenever or wherever they see us. The rooms were spacious and super clean. Housekeeping cleans the rooms twice and refills mini-bar once per day by paying upmost attention to the privacy of the guests. Some of the previous review I read mentioned that furnitures at the hotel were a bit outdated. It is true but definitely nothing disturbing. Food in the main restaurant was so delicious. Maybe restaurant and open buffet are not as big or various as some other more expensive hotels in Maldives but they are definitely more than adequate with the price we gave to Veligandu. One special thanks to waiter Hassan. He was super warm and smiling during our every meal. The sea around the hotel was breathtaking. All in all, Veligandu was an amazing choice for us to spend our honeymoon.

5th Resort in Maldives! ”

My 5th stay at Maldives. The first four was Anantara, Banyan Tree, W & Adaaran Prestige. Stayed in the Water Villa + Jacuzzi on the All Inclusive Package (AIP), which includes all meals and 24 hours Alcohol and Snacks for three nights. Tips #1: Go for the All Inclusive Package, unless you don't drink, then go for the Full Board. Tips #2: I usually prefer Sunset view, and I picked Sunset this time as well. But I think I was wrong. Go for Sunrise (East) View rooms, the ones at the middle east side are better if you like to see more fishes. Go during Full Moon, it's unbelievable beautiful. They don't have buggy car, so don't pick the rooms far away. Island is not that small, it's actually 10 mins walk from the over water villas to the restaurant/bar three times a day. A very good size, I would say, with many different view. Beaches, if you love sandy beaches, there are plenty of beaches at Veligandu. They are all superb. One of the best beaches, I could sit at the 24 hours Bar all day long, or on one of the swings or hammocks. Fishes. This resort has very little fishes at the lagoons, unless you swim all the way to the edge of the reef. On an average look you see a few relative big fishes (they are all the same color) under your villa. While on cruises and snorkeling trips we saw sharks, dolphins, sting rays, turtles, etc, etc, just not at your Villa. Other resorts I've been has hundreds of other fishes & living creatures in the water near the villa. This is the ONLY draw back about Veligandu. If you pay to visit the reef (additional activities are not expensive here), the reefs are not bad, Staff & Service: Top notch. They don't remember your names like the premium resorts, but I'd rather they don't call my name every time I walk pass. Flawless service (except for the lady at the dive center, she's really professional, never seen her smile). Bar and Restaurant staffs, cleaning staffs, all excellent. Food. Excellent.

This is our 1st island resort stay in Maldives. We spent 4 days 3 nights here & indeed very nice island resort. We were arranged with Seaplane transport from Male to Veligandu & everything is in order and smooth. We managed to check in at around 11am with lunch provided. We joined the Sunset punch dolphin tour & it was fun & enjoyable. Besides, we also joined snorkeling tour & managed to see coral & fish. It wasn't easy for snorkeling as the wave is quite big as compared to our other visits. There are variety choice of foods/meals including vegetarian option. Highly recommend to opt for full board if you pay a visit to this resort. As for services, it was good during check in period that made you feels like VIP. The minus point is check out & you will be treated like normal 3* hotel to settle the bill with no more warm feeling as a guest. Overall, this is a very nice place to enjoy honeymoon. Our Water Jacuzzi Villa able to see Sun Rise & we spent our time at beach to see the Sunset.

Real parafise in the world”

This is the 5th time we stayed at Veligandu for us and this time was excellent too, or the best up to date. We get up early in the morning, take a walk in the island, taking pictures, watching various kinds of fishes, reef sharks, birds living in this island long, returning to villa to swim and then go to have breakfast. After breakfast, taking a nap at the pool side, and then swimming in the ocean or doing kayak, having lunch and then go to the bar for drinking, taking a nap, after that going to gym or swimming. Before the dinner, go to the bar for drinking while watching sunset, and then having dinner. After the dinner, play table tennis or billiyard and then going to the bar again. Every day is same, but these times were very precious for us and we had a really comfortable time this time as well, thanks to all the staff at Veligandu! Next time we return to Maldives, we will definitely choose Veligandu to stay. Thanks a lot to everyone at Veligandu!!

From the moment you arrive, Veligandu staff takes charge and makes every moment of your stay effortless. Everyone has smiles and is more than willing to help with all your needs. We had the AIP (all inclusive package) and it had everything we needed and more. If you’re looking for a honeymoon destination, or just a place to relax and soak up the sun. Veligandu island is the place to visit. You won’t regret it. We are from LA and have stayed all over the world, and I must say, we found our favorite destination. The colors, sunsets, and warm water are only part of the experience. Hats off to the island staff, they’ve left us with only the happiest of memories and we will be returning in the future. We stayed in the overwater jacuzzi villa on the sunset side, and when we return, hopefully we will have the same. Don’t hesitate, if you’ve found this review, jump on this opportunity. It’s truly a 5 star resort. Ps- diving was amazing and so was the deepsea fishing!

Great beach and food”

Very good food, probably too good.rooms also quite nice.

We stayed at jacuzzi beach villa and loved it. Rooms are spacious and jacuzzis are nice. The sand bank on the island is fantastic. The only downside to us was dead coral on the house reef which was very disappointing, so we had to take snorkeling trips to enjoy the coral, which were fantastic. Too bad there were only two snorkeling trips on offer, we could easily do a lot more. The sea life is fantastic, we saw many eagle rays on the house reef and manta reefs on snorkeling trips, not to mentions reef sharks. The food is unbelievable at this resort, we have been to many resorts around the world but Veligandu shef tops them all! Great vegetarian curries are must try! We Did not go all inclusive and think it is a bit of waste of money at Veligandu cause the cocktails are not that expensive compared to other resorts in Maldives, we thought wine and beer prices were very reasonable.
